The area of Micro Devices and Physical Principles involves understanding and applying fundamental physical principles to develop revolutionary new electronic, sensing, and optical devices -- for instance, graphene and other 2D materials. Research includes nanofabrication and electromagnetic design for photonic circuits, ultrafast lasers, quantum device structures, and plasma processing.
A "hands-on" emphasis supports collaborations with local industry and nearby Brookhaven National Laboratory.
Research areas: Large-Scale Optical Switching Fabrics, Optical Interconnection Networks for High-Performance Computing, Optical Interconnection Networks for Data Center Computing Systems, Integrable Interconnection Network Systems and Subsystems, Inter-Chip Multi-Processor Interconnection Networks, and Intra-Chip Multi-Processor Interconnection Networks.
Research areas: Integrated optical devices and design, surface physics of oxides, semiconductors and metals, new laser sources, advanced electronic materials (oxides, semi conductors) and optical physics and simulation.
